Barrie Beard Ltd are proud to be the Building Safety Group (BSG) 2015 Midland WINNERS for Best Health and Safety in Planning and Design. Director, Warren Beard, accepted the award on behalf of Barrie Beard Ltd at the BSG Health & Safety Awards Ceremony on Tuesday 6th October 2015 at the Williams F1 Conference Centre in Oxfordshire.
The BSG Award for regional Member of the Year in the Midlands was awarded to a company that put the management of Health and Safety is at the top of the agenda when planning the installation of a complex, 220 floodlights system at Aston Villa Football Club.
Particular attention was given to mitigating the working at height risks inherent when working on an existing structure through the use of specialist ‘fall prevention systems’ which involved everyone involved including the workforce, managers, and company directors as well as our own local BSG Advisor undertaking comprehensive harness training prior to the project commencing. This enabled the risk of ‘falls from height’ to be controlled and managed safely throughout the project.
The entire system had to be installed, tested, and commissioned before the start of the 2015/16 football season, an extremely short time frame of 6 weeks. This was successfully achieved without any compromise to health and safety due to the level of planning undertaken in the pre-construction phase. Congratulations and well done Barrie Beard.
